As most of us are watching the news and learning about the impact of COVID-19 here in the states, at Global Fund for Women, we are hearing from the women around the world about their creative solutions and pressing needs caused by the pandemic crisis. 

Where water isn’t readily available in homes, women have created inventive hand washing stations. In refugee camps in the Middle East, women are finding inventive ways to use WhatsApp and keep young kids learning.  

At the same time, this moment carries great risks for women and historically vulnerable communities. Domestic violence increases. Contraception services become unavailable. Women are often the primary caregivers and risk their health to provide care and save lives.

As a generous supporter who cares about women around the world, we invite you to join us for a webinar to learn inventive solutions, pressing needs and simple ways we can all help. Join Global Fund for Women CEO, Latanya Mapp Frett in conversation with Vice President of Programs Leila Hessini and Hong Kong activist Judy Kan. 

Together, we will emerge from this crisis more dedicated than ever to a bold vision of gender justice.

P.S. In times of crisis, gender justice movements protect the most vulnerable by directing critical resources to oppressed communities. Please consider supporting gender justice activists leading the COVID-19 response.
